Wide receiver Greg Jennings has put his Green Bay house on the market and all signs continue to point toward his departure from the Packers in free agency.
Less clear is where Jennings might be playing next. A lot of teams have been thrown out as potential landing spots and a few of them came up during an interview with Lindsay Rhodes of the NFL Network. Jennings said he’d have no trouble jumping to the Packers’ NFC North rivals in Minnesota, saying all 31 teams would be an option, and he was a bit more expansive when asked about the possibility of reuniting with former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin with the Dolphins.
“I wouldn’t mind that at all,” Jennings said. “The weather’s definitely nice. They have an up and coming quarterback and they definitely have a defense that’s pretty solid and some pieces on offense that are pretty solid as well.”
This isn’t the first positive note we’ve heard from Jennings about playing in Miami. Even though Jennings still says he’d like to play for the Packers, he seems resigned to things not turning out that way and it seems he’s already got his eyes on a preferred new home for 2013.
The Dolphins haven’t made any secret about their interest in adding playmakers to the offense this offseason and Jennings certainly qualifies on that front. If they were able to re-sign Brian Hartline and add Jennings to a group that also includes Davone Bess, the options available to Ryan Tannehill in the quarterback’s second season would look a lot better than they did in Year One.
